The Impossible Dead

By (author) Ian Rankin

Malcolm Fox and his team are back, investigating whether fellow cops covered up for Detective Paul Carter. Carter has been found guilty of misconduct, but what should be a simple job is soon complicated by a brutal murder and a weapon that should not even exist. A trail of revelations leads Fox back to 1985, a year of desperate unrest when letter-bombs and poisonous spores were sent to government offices, and kidnappings and murders were plotted. But while the body count rises the clock starts ticking, and a dramatic turn of events sees Fox in mortal danger.

Reviews of The Impossible Dead

"Fox works for me. Divorced and in his mid-40s, he's quieter than Rebus and warier of confrontation, but no less complex… So doubters be damned: this novel is taut, compulsive and hugely satisfying" — John O'Connell GUARDIAN "An addictive, brilliantly written page-turner" PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH "A cracking thriller starring Ian Rankin's new hero Malcolm Fox" — Shari Low DAILY RECORD
